Bio Discography

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

These are albums that have definitely shaped my inner creative landscape, there are plenty of individual songs that deserve special note but these are full albums that I have spent time with, unlocking their full organic codes and digesting in toto. (Note: the dates I've put in occasionally are just stops along the way to show about when I remember really getting into these albums, not when they were released.)
